Local artists donated their work for the silent auction. And once again this year, the baked goods and crafts tables, filled with amazing donated items, were very popular. Guests were also entertained throughout the evening by music and entertainment provided by local artists both young and old.Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the artists, and everyone who came out that night, plus the hard work and dedication of Franca, her family and our volunteers, the event raised $3,142. This beats last year’s total of $2,500! All the proceeds raised go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).
